Janet’s List is a smart and simple way to connect consumers with women of colour in business. Our aim is to make it easier for consumers to buy from, and support business owners who are women of colour. The best way to do this is to buy from businesses by women of colour and contribute to their bottom line. It’s as simple as that. Our curated list of the best products, services and experiences will make it easy for you to do this.
We recognise that women of colour business owners face additional hurdles when it comes to access to money, markets and management skills. Our plan is to create a closed membership community to enable targeted problem solving and support.
We also want to proactively connect female minority women in business with the right opportunities. Our goal is to help these amazing businesses to receive the mainstream visibility and support they deserve so that they can grow and thrive.
Although we are based in London, our outlook is global and our aspiration is to support businesses in Europe, America and Africa.
Our Founder - a note
I am passionate about intelligent, collaborative and creative work, which transforms people’s lives.
I was a family law barrister for close to 7 years before a creative opportunity changed the course of my career. A unique opportunity to manage a celebrity’s social media (she’s an Academy Award Winner) was a fantastic introduction into working with communities online.
I have since worked with an amazing array of female-led businesses on their strategy, communications, online presence and social media. I adore the women I have worked with and I have experienced the potential for women to take the charge when it comes to business – especially businesses by women of colour.
Janet’s List is at the intersection of all the things I love: empowering women, diversity, business and digital technology. I cannot wait to bring this platform to life.
